Wishing, hoping, trying hard not to fall
that I'd be winning the game we've been playing
Wishing that when i kiss your shoulders
you'd look back at me and smile too
that what you share with her right now,
is something we'd be having too
Hoping I'm not just another option to you
Not another tool you'd use to ease your pain
Because I am tired of playing this role
On everyone else I have loved before.
Trying not to want someone else's girl more
And yet stupidly staring at their photographs
Left me wond'ring how great it could've been
If it was me instead of her holding you there
You may want a lot of things
Kiss one person after the other
Smile and sing for many reasons
But at the end of each sunny day
when darkness brings you to bed
who would you wish to sleep beside you?
Wishing, hoping, trying hard not to tell you
that I'm losing the game we've been playing.
